The past two years or so have seen Taylor Swift skyrocket to a seemingly insurmountable level of fame, but despite proving her foothold as one of her generation's greatest artists—if not one of the greatest artists of all time—again and again, critics can't get over her, frankly, pretty uneventful love life (at least until she met Travis Kelce).

Now, in her highly anticipated new album The Tortured Poets Department, which set the Spotify record for most presaves, she seems to be clapping back at anyone who has wasted their time "bitching and moaning" about her relationships throughout her career.

In track 6, "But Daddy I Love Him"—which some are speculating is about her shortlived fling with Matty Healy, which caused quite the stir at the time due to a number of problematic behaviors in his past—the 34-year-old seems to clap back at anyone who's tried to drag her down over her relationships over the years, reminding listeners that her relationships are nobody's business but her own—no matter how "crazy" they may seem.

She puts it into the perspective of a small town of churchgoers, singing of "Sarahs and Hannahs in their Sunday best" who are "clutching their pearls, sighing, 'What a mess,'" as they watch her and her beau from the outside.

After realizing that people like that only "try and save you 'cause they hate you," she teases them directly, singing, "I’m having his baby; no, I'm not, but you should see your faces," before reminding them of their place.

"I’d rather burn my whole life down than listen to one more second of all this bitching and moaning," she asserts, declaring her "good name" hers "alone to disgrace," and not that of the "vipers dressed in empaths' clothing."

She prays for "the most judgmental creeps who say they want what’s best for me" to be saved, even though they're "Sanctimoniously performing soliloquies [she'll] never see."

Nothing they can say or do will "change the beat of [her] heart" or "undo the destiny," she swears, firmly declaring, "You ain’t gotta pray for me."
